Smoke hid rocky Arab territory (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

sheikdom

'arab territory' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'smoke hid rocky' is the wordplay.
'rocky' indicates an anagram.
'smoke'+'hid'='smokehid'
'smokehid' with letters rearranged gives 'SHEIKDOM'.

(Another definition for sheikdom that I've seen is "Arab chief's territory".)
